AuditArc connects auditors and consultants to their clients by providing a secure collaborative work space consisting of a client and portal. Audit clients are guided through required compliance activities for programs such as PCI, GLBA, SOX, FISMA/NIST or for specific areas such as segregation of duties in IT. They can then prepare and maintain evidence, track status of their efforts, and securely provide that evidence to auditors and consultants by utilizing the portal software. Auditors and consultants can download evidence, conduct guided testing, report on the status of their engagement to the client, create reports, and identify issues by utilizing the client software. Issues can then be tracked through remediation and re-tested when remediation is complete.
